Although I am busying myself prepping for the LSAT, which is this coming Saturday, my husband keeps trying to distract me with some not-so-forbidden fruits. Two days ago he brought home Ratatouille from the library and yesterday he handed me a sack of citrus. In the bag were tangelos, tangerines, navel oranges and the humungo ponderosa lemon. They are all represented in the above pic.
The ponderosa lemon is almost 5 pounds. It’s huge size makes it easily mistaken for a grapefruit, which would be nice, too. Anyway, although the temptation is there to go crazy with my zester, I am containing my enthusiasm and putting off all jam making until after the LSAT.
What will come of my Florida fruit bounty? I really couldn’t tell you other than “think small.” Four ounce jars have been selling well and I continue to receive inquiries asking about what new varieties will be available in petite. So I promise this: something citrus and something soon.
Thursday (tomorrow) is my last major LSAT prep day. Friday I cook for My Client. Saturday I take the LSAT and attend the ballet with my family. Hopefully in the midst of all this I can cook something yummy for us, since Thanksgiving leftovers are long gone and the cranberry cake and baked stuffed potatoes I made the other night are also distant, digested memories. My tummy is rumbling, my head is spinning and the clock is ticking.
Time for bed!
